sneak peek…

Katie’s been busy working on her 4-H Armada Fair projects [most likely her last year in 4-H]. As mentioned in an earlier post, every year she enters a ‘dairy’ project utilizing her goats’ milk. The process begins by choosing a COUNTRY and discovering facts about their dairy/cheese culture. In addition to the dairy/cheese actual product [which the judges actually taste/eat!!!], Katie also ‘creates’ a story book to document her findings and methods…

She shops for materials at the Dollar Store; a children’s board book is simply transformed…with magazine snippets, photos, stickers, stamps, etc.

An inexpensive altered book of sorts.

It’s an awesome simple creative project for kids [the two-legged variety!]!

Similarly, Katie is documenting her WOOL 4-H Project…

She just so happened to find this sheepy board book at the Dollar Store…

…and immediately began to ALTER the ‘booklet’ to make it her own!

Pretty simple, eh? It’s a great project to get the kids’ creative juices flowing…on a hot summer’s day! Allow the children to choose a TOPIC or EVENT that’s familiar to them, assemble a few ART supplies and watch their creativity SOAR!!!
